"The seamless integration of strawberry-plum fruit with creamy oak; the way acidity exposes autumn leaf characters to the sun; the way tartness makes fruit sweetness seem sophisticated. It's a wine in excellent form."


James Halliday Wine Companion 2019


"This year the Estate Pinot Noir has a slightly different personality. Bottled earlier and with more whole bunches, this has a surprising energy to it that makes it perhaps the most approachable Pinot Noir in the range (for now). Driven by cherry fruit with a ripple of vanilla and tomato leaf, it’s even and spicy with just a hint of jam. Love the open fruit of this vintage, yet with a spicy finish too. Lots to like. Best drinking 2018-2026"


Andrew Graham


 

You can go this now, you can go this later. It’s pretty and slippery-smooth but the line of acidity, overall balance and strictness of the tannin makes you think that it will mature well, at least into the medium term. Undergrowth, sweet spices, noticeable smoky/cedary/creamy oak and a flush go sweet cherry-like flavour. Perhaps some chicory notes too. It’s eager-to-please but it doesn’t lack either presence or length.
